For this simple origami T-Rex we need a quadratic sheet of paper and scissors. First of all we fold the paper in half so the color is outside that we want our T-Rex to be.

  1. I love how simple it is but you can still tell immediately that it's a dinosaur. It's also very cute. Thank you for the video!

  2. This one was really hard to follow. Some rotation are important but it's not clear, when i got to 2:08 i saw i had cut the wrong way, and need to cut the correct sides. Apparently it didnt screw up with the end design, but overall i had to pause and repeat a lot of steps, and i do mean a lot, like turning the 9 min tutorial easily into an hour. Also ended up with slight angle differences, especially in the hands, which makes the t-rex harder to recognize.

    For beginners, i'm guessing a lot more details are required.
